Hillwood Estate, Museum and Gardens, Washington, DC

Hillwood Estate, Museum and Gardens, Washington, DC

 

On Saturday, Dolores and I visited Hillwood Estate, Museum and Gardens in Washington, DC. The current special exhibit, available through January 10, 2016 is Ingenue to Icon: 70 Years of Fashion from the Collection of Marjorie Merriweather Post. We also took a guided tour of the mansion which is decorated for the holidays. We are annual members at Hillwood and always enjoy our visits.
